Champagne Classic Field

The Champagne Classic field usually consists of a mixture of proven two-year-olds and a few horses without much background to go on. As a race open to all two year olds, in the Champagne Classic field you can find good geldings with long careers ahead of them running alongside fillies with less than twelve months racing left in them.
